Last week, we asked you what it means to be a good cook. It’s different for everyone. When some people think of a good cook, their minds automatically go to their moms, who could magically make dinner out of nothing. Or that moment when they finally mastered making an omelet (there’s an art to it!). Or their friend who really should be on Top Chef.

Here’s what you guys had to say.

Being a good cook means creating memorable moments.

It means getting dinner on the table.

It means feeling comfortable in the kitchen.

It means mastering the basic skills.

It means knowing how to really use your cookbooks.
